Always a good time.

The course was in great shape as usual and enjoyed my round very much.
The only negative was the smoke from debris pile that was burning late in the round. The fact that course was going to be closed for days due to the weather makes me think that it would have been better to do that later.

Super hard pin placements

A few pin placements coupled with fast greens created unfair unrealistic putting. A few times putting up hill the ball stopped for 1 second about 1-3 inches from hole and rolled 4-9 feet back down

It was fun but not realistic
